    Hate and fear.
    He was taught to hate and fear those who aren't the same as he is.

    He basically quoted Fox News Tucker Carlson's bull shit. Copied ch 4 ( I am not familiar with that outlet) which from what I have read today is a white supremacy conspiracy site. Out local paper is also saying the he had issues while a student in school. Police were involved. But it seems that it did not go much past that at the time. The whole idea that a local kid could or would do something like this is mind bogging

    And the sad--ridiculous thing is---nothing will ever be done about mass shooting in the US. Nothing. It's a fact of life here that will just have to be lived with and accepted. I 'm not dumb enough to assume I have any viable answer to the problem. The age old and continuing human problems with lust for power, prejudice, war, hate, enslavement, cruelty, will continue. Why not?

    There are things that could be done. The solution for many is to arm everyone and as that security guard was taken out even though he was armed due to the assailant wearing body armor, I guess we all need to buy more and deadlier guns, wear body armor and ride in armored cars all the time.

    I believe it was a legally purchased AR 15 style Bushmaster XM-15 assault weapon illegally modified with a high capacity magazine probably purchased out of state as NY does not permit them to be sold.

    He also had a Mossberg 500 shotgun (which is used in various designs by the military) and a Savage Arms Axis XP bolt action gun.

    You bring up an interesting thought. How many POC have committed mass shootings in the US?
